Avocado Kulipaniyaram

Kulipaniyaram is a special and popular snack in Tamilnadu which is prepared in a special pan. There are various flavours in kulipaniyaram, it can be made sweet or savoury. In this recipe i have added the creamy avocado flavour to the kulipaniyaram which is accompanied with a spicy sun dried tomato chutney. Soft and crispy paniyaram with the mild avocado flavour along with a spicy chutney will make you a ideal tea time snack.
Serves 3 to 4
Makes about 20 paniyaram
Paniyaram:
Ingredients:
Avocado-1
Urad dhal- 1 cup
Raw rice - 1 tbsp
Onion- 1/2 chopped finely
Mustard seeds- 1 tsp
Salt- as required
Oil- for frying
Method:
Soak the urad dhal and rice for 2 hours, grind it into a smooth paste adding a little bit of water. Just before frying add the mashed avocado and mix well. Heat a teaspoon of oil in a pan, add the mustard seeds, when they start to splutter, add it to the batter and finely chopped, salt and mix well.
Heat a kulipaniyaram pan, add about a teaspoon of oil in each round, pour spoonfull of batter in the round. Keep the flame in medium to low, after 2 or 3 minutes, turn them around. To check if it's cooked, insert a skewer and check if it comes out clean. Take them out and repeat it with remaining batter.
If you don't have a kulipaniyaram pan don't worry, heat oil in a kadai and deep fry them like normal bhaji's or pakoras.
Serve warm with chutney.

Sundried Tomato Chutney
Ingredients:
Sundried Tomato-5 pieces
Grated fresh coconut- 1 tbsp
Walnuts-5 nuts
Garlic-2 cloves
Dried red chilli- 2
Curry leaves-5 leaves
Salt as required
Method:
Grind all the ingredients together in a blender with little water to a smooth paste, serve with paniyaram, dosa or idli's.
